Summary
A forbidden and unrealized love affair blooms between a 16-year-old Manchurian girl and a disguised Japanese soldier as they meet daily on `the square of a thousand winds` to play the ancient game of `go` in Japanese-occupied, war-torn Manchuria in the 1930s.
Critique
An eloquent coming-of-age story. Historical war fiction at its most poignant. A moving and unforgettable love story. Highly recommend.
